well I have never in all of the time that I have been restoring, had so many congratulation's and recognition showered upon me. what a great bunch of guys you are.
really good to here from Lauber 1 as he used to visit us on the VHGMC in UK. Some of you have asked about the machine well,here are some details. MAKE Barford atom 30
DATE 1948
FUEL Petrol
H.P. 3
TRANS 2 speed no reverse
Impliments Single furrow plough
Snow plough 36 inch cut
Harrows
Seed Tiller
Spring tine harrows
when these machines where in production,Barford made three diferent models a atom 15 atom 30 and a multi gardener which was the smallest one. this company produced there equipment in Boston Lincolnshire UK
They produced over 30 attachments for these machines and where very popular after the 2 nd w.war. so thanks to you all and a happy new year. any further restorations I will post on here for you to see. john.

Well done sir, well done indeed!

 

I used to post some on the VHGMC forums in the Ride on section, but since they changed the website, and you now have to be a paid VHGMC member to post .....

 

It was a lot of fun keeping track of what you guys in the UK collect and some of the restorations are truly awesome.

 

I really like the ones on the Ransoms MG crawlers.  Really different machines that what we have here.

Have just had a small thought here about getting equipment back to the states. As many of you will know here in the U.K we have a large amount of American Bases and other secret establishments hiding all over our country side. most of the U S Service personnel come on a timed stay and I am sure that if you happen to know one or have a friend who knows of one here,they could get it back to states through there shipping services.  Its got to be worth looking into for sure.    john.
